After the team’s first loss of the season to Raptors Uprising last Wednesday they matched up Friday against Magic Gaming. This time with better results than the season opener. In the first game in the best of 3 series, we saw a couple of line up changes with Newdini moving to the lockdown position at the SG and BRICH starting the first game at the PF. Reesedagod had the hot hand in game 1 putting up 23 points shooting 8 for 11 with JBM right behind him with 19 points of his own and 8 assists. District Gaming took the first game 64-62 with Reese hitting a big 3 to help seal the deal at the end of the game. District Gaming went on to win game 2 59-51 for the 2-0 sweep and the first win of the regular season. In the 2nd game, the whole team was feeling it with 4 players in double digits in scoring (JBM, Reesedagod, BRICH, and Dayfri). Newdini with 4 steals his first game of season 3 playing lockdown.
Dayfri also had his 4th double-double of the season. As mentioned in my first article there is a lot of things this team can roll out in terms of lineups due to their abilities to play multiple positions. They now sit at 1-1 with their next matchup coming up on Tuesday, May 12th against Heat Check Gaming.
They now sit at 1-1 and will look to make it 2-1 with their next matchup against Heat Check Gaming. District Gaming inserted Awkward back at lockdown SG and Newdini in at the PF spot for this best of 3 series as Wiz DG went on to lose game 1 65-52. In-game 1 JBM went on to drop 23 pts and 7 assists, Dayfri puts up another double-double, Reesedagod finds himself in double digits again, Awkward comes up with 4 steals and newdini knocks down a couple of 3’s. District Gaming needed to win game 2 to force a game 3 for the reverse sweep and that they did. They went on to win game 2 65-49 as JBM scored 24 pts with 5 assists, Dayfri puts up ANOTHER double-double, Newdini finds himself in double digits with 10, Reesedagod comes up short of double digits with 9 points with JustAwkward contributing 6 points and 4 assists. ANOTHER Game 3 for District Gaming as they go on to get the reverse sweep defeating Heat Check Gaming 69-62 with JBM dropping 28 points with 7 assists and Dayfri with a season-high 26 points for him along with 8 boards and 3 blocks.
District Gaming now finds themselves at 2-1 with the next matchup against Pistons GT on May 19th at 9:00 pm where they will look to improve to 3-1.
